Taught by

This half-time, two-quarter, writing-intensive program will explore ideas and experiences related to the many facets of beauty. Why does beauty matter? How does it influence us? What makes something beautiful? These are questions that different communities and cultures answer differently. What seem like individual “preferences” turn out to be influenced by power and tradition, which impact people in a variety of ways. We’ll study and write about beauty through a variety of lenses, including social justice, the environment, community, and literary art.

We develop as leaders when we are ready and willing to make the hard changes in ourselves. Leadership develops when people realize that it is as much about their own personal lives as it is about their organizational roles.  Leaders live with constant demands from all levels of the systems in their organizations. They give and give and give and often receive little in return.  Leaders that are skillful have leadership habits that work but often aren’t always certain about why they work.

Taught by

Classical Greece and Rome and Renaissance Italy made some of the Western world's most extraordinary contributions to the written word and the visual arts. These accomplishments continue to captivate artists and thinkers, giving them models and standards to admire, emulate, struggle against, or reject—but rarely to ignore. We will study the texts and monuments of ancient Greece, from the Bronze Age to the Roman period, and Italy, especially Rome and Florence, from the Etruscan period through the 16th century.
